I use AVG as my virus protection. I now have two Trojans on the computer that I can't get rid of.

One is called Trojan Horse Clicker.TQR and the other is Trojan Horse Clicker.SXT.

I've physically deleted these two threads, I've used AVG to remove them or put them in the Vault. I've downloaded a Trojan remover and tried to remove them. I've gone into Safe Mode and run AVG and the Trojan remover. Nothing seems to remove these.

I've tried researching them,but nothing comes up. I'm at my wits end.

If you need any further information please let me know.

I am using Windows XP SP3

When I CLT ALT DEL and go into the process section I have a program running called x5mFUvJ.exe
this shouldn't be here. So I stop it but it comes back.

The two files are in two areas, one is in the My Computer>Local Disc C:>Document&Settings>USER>Local Settings>TEMP

The x5mFUvJ.exe is in My Computer>Local Disc C:>WINDOWS

steps I've taken, I've scanned with AVG, SUPER AntiSpyware, A-Squared Free. I've done the scans in Safe Mode and not in safe mode and yet the viruses are still here. I've physically removed them and thrown them in the Recycle Bin then get rid of them and they come back.

I've gone to Spyware Terminator Forum and posted and wasn't able to get anything resolved so I was recommended here. I believe I used Spyware Terminator too and still have the viruses.

On occasion, when running the scans I hear a woman going 'You've One a free Ipod (or laptop)" or I hear those stupid Smilies things going "OH NO, GO AWAY" but no pops are up, no windows are open.

If you need me to I will go and post a HighJack This in the approperiate thread.

Hello and welcomw,if we need that HJT we will request it later. Let's first run MBAM.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.

Adware.Vundo Variant/Rel

I just restarted the computer, sometimes it takes a while for the viruses to come back. I not sure yet if they are completely gone. Its midnight and I'm tired as all hell so I have a couple questions before I go to bed.

Will Windows Firewall keep me from getting trojans/viruses?
If the Trojans/Viruses are gone, can I turn on my System Restore points again?
Currently I have A-Squared Free, SUPERAntiSpyware, MalwareBytes Anti-Malware, and ATF-Cleaner, if the Trojans/Viruses are gone, can I get rid of these as well?

What can I do to protect myself better from this happening again?
